READ CALLER STORIES FROM PEOPLE WE ARE HELPING EACH DAY:
- A family called 211 after their home burned. Fire fighters arrived and the family (4 adults, 3 children) made it out safely. The landlord had no fire insurance and was willing to let them sleep in the yard in a camping tent, promising to fix the house eventually. The mom called us asking for assistance. The adults have not been able to work due to COVID-19 and family was in need of blankets, some dishes and food, and concerned for one of the kids with asthma.
- A caller who is disabled, female, mid 50’s lost her caregiver because of COVID-19. In need of help to get groceries, she tried Next Door volunteers. They kept some of her money and did not buy all her groceries. She is unable to use delivery as she is not physically able to bring in groceries. Feeling frustrated and scared, she called 211 for help.
